- "Eeyore told me Pooh wasn't quite himself."
Kanga is a character from the 100 Acre Wood appearing in Kingdom Hearts II. Though her world has been shown in the games, she does not appear until the third installment. She is based on her appearance in Disney's Winnie the Pooh franchise. Kanga is Roo's kangaroo mother, very gentle and a typical mother figure.
When she first appears, she hears from Piglet that Pooh has forgotten everything about his friends and makes a medicine in attempt to restore his memory, but Tigger takes it, thinking it is a present to him. Though they get it back, Pooh never drank the medicine and he somehow regained his memory of Tigger after Tigger felt bad about Pooh not remembering him, saying it wouldn't be worth bouncing if Pooh forgot about him.

Roo's mother. When she leaves her house, she just pops little Roo into her pouch and off they go.
Kanga is always ready with kind and gentle advice for her neighbors in the Hundred Acre Wood.
Kanga appears three times in the Hundred Acre Wood storyline, the first being at her house along with Roo and Tigger. She gives Pooh some medicine in hopes of him regaining his former self. Her second appearance is at the Spooky Cave helping Sora search for Pooh. She is last seen at Starry Hill saying goodbye to Sora.
Kanga is an anthropomorphized, adult, female kangaroo with light brown fur covering most of her body, except for her belly, pouch, and the insides of her ears, which are salmon pink. She has large feet that lack toes and comparatively smaller arms. The only distinct digits on her hands are her thumbs. She also has a somewhat short tail. Kanga's ears are quite large and her neck is rather long. She has beady black eyes and a black nose.
Kanga is the sweet and caring mother of Roo. However, she also acts as a motherly figure to the other Hundred Acre Wood characters, giving advice and help to those in need.
- Though her current voice actor, Kath Soucie, is part of the Kingdom Hearts II cast, voicing Sally and Shock of the Halloween Town world, for some reason, she does not voice Kanga here.
